The latest MacBook and iMacs with upgraded specs are great, however they are still missing one thing which many PCs are now beginning to have – touchscreen technology. This is especially so since Windows 7 now officially supports the use of touchscreens. Though MacBooks and iMacs with touchscreens are not actually being produced and sold by Apple and instead by Troll Touch, a company with a long history of enabling touch technology for Apple computer products.
Apple has given the MacBook a much needed upgrade to its specs. The processor jumps from 2.13GHz to 2.26 GHz, the HDD from 160GB to 250GB, while the 2GB of DDR2 RAM has been swapped for the same amount of slightly faster DDR3 memory. Visible changes include a new rubber bottom, glass multitouch trackpad, LED backlighting to go with its 13.3-inch display and a non-removable built-in seven hour battery which has already been seen on the MacBook Pro.
Since the UK Apple store has just re-opened, we can now report that the new pricing for the above MacBook will be £799 which isn’t bad at all considering all the new premium features you’ll be getting.
A list has been going around and leaked onto the internet, AppleInsider claims that they have got word of all the product announcements coming today from Apple. This also includes specs for a new iMac, new Mac Mini, and some other new updated goodies including Time Capsules with some sort of sim dualband?

Settle down, this is by no means an official release. In fact this is merely just a concept, a thought of what a MacBook tablet computer could look like. While the MacBook Touch tablet concept by Isamu Sanada from Japan doesn’t come with any specs (leave that to your imagination), I’m not absolutely sure whether I would like to see the iPhone OS running on a tablet version of the MacBook. This makes it feel like a supersized iPhone, why not go for Mac OS X instead?
This is one Mac that not everyone will be able to get their hands on I’m afraid. The guys from Colorware who love to play around with their customised coloring technology have dished out this very special matte black Stealth Macbook Pro completed using sof*touch hi-tech plastic rubber.
This gives the laptop a complete protection over any scuffs, fingerprints that we know we love to “hand out”…
Apart from the iPhone 3G S and iPhone 3.0 which were showcased at the WWDC yesterday, there is also now a new MacBook Pro lineup. Aluminum unibody as you will probably have guessed, the MacBook Pro family will include 13-inch, 15-inch and 17 inch.
Improved features include 40% extended battery life, thanks to their lithium polymer built-in battery technology that can gest out a minimum of seven hours of work on a single charge. LED backlit displays will give better colour, multi-touch trackpad, an illuminated keyboard and guess what a new SD card (13 and 15-inch) or ExpressCard slot (17-inch), FireWire 800 port and new NVIDIA graphics display.
Remember the really cool MacBook logo LCD mod done by Eddie (EdsJunk)? Eddie has now unveiled how he did it, in fact, he has now revealed a tutorial to doing it in the comfort of your own home, though you will need to have bought a small LCD monitor / screen and some solder to do this mod. This could be an excellent DIY project for this weekend for anyone who was interested in incising their MacBooks
